The ProBook 650 G1 is a business laptop by HP. It comes with a docking port, which is usually used to easily connect or disconnect the laptop to existing peripherals in office. The design is very executive-like with a silver chassis and DualPoint keyboard. There is an option to downgrade from Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 7 Pro depending on the user or organization.
The laptop supports the Intel Core i5-4300M with a HD Graphic 4600 graphics processor, 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM and 320 GB storage. This specification will vary depending on the selected configuration. The display is a 15.6 inch LED FHD SVA anti-glare panel and has no webcam.
There is a DVD burner and the audio is not great as expected from a business class laptop. Battery life on the other hand is good and will last around 7 hours depending on the usage with its 6 cell Lithium-Ion battery. In conclusion, this is a laptop for everyday tasks in organizations. There is nothing to shout about but it will certainly get the job done.
